Review

Exception Car...really didn't notice them when they were new...but very roomy..styling holds up well


Best Features

ROOM- this is one of the roomest interiors I have seen..love the bench style seats.

I think the guys and gals at Plymouth did their research on this one. Only the marketing people didn't know it!

Review

My husband and I bought this car just before getting married. It has very little rust (really, not any), and other than the usual repairs like brakes, battery, and tires, it has only been in the shop once for a tune up (in the 7th year) and had the water pump replaced. The car has just under 200,000 miles and shows no signs of leaving us yet. We plan on getting a new car for my husband and keeping the Acclaim around for the older kids and a "kick around" car when needed.


Best Features

No real favorite feature, other than reliability.


Worst Features

I did not like the body design, but it did not bother my husband. Too boxy.

Review

Car was great at 75,000 still good at 100,000 but has become a money pit ever since...cracked head, left axle, timing belt, water pump, thermostat, oil pan, head gasket, plus the usual repairs. Has 127,000 now and Im gonna sell this car as fast as I can before something else goes wrong.


Best Features

Great Highway driving in this car....when it runs


Worst Features

would love a console between the front bucket seats....its just wasted space.

Review

My folks got me this car 2.5 years ago for commuting to school, and it's been great. It has 122k miles on it now, and the only major repair I've had to have done was for a leaking a/c. It's holding up great, although it only gets about 20-22mpg, probably because I'm doing mostly city driving. I love driving this car, and I'm going to miss it when it finally dies (which will luckily probably be a while).


Best Features

For its size, this car is quite roomy, and I like that it sits high enough that it's easy to get in & out of. I also like the square-ish styling better than the newer curvy ones.


Worst Features

Cupholders would be nice.

Review

Extensive warranty work on engine. Premature breakdown of A/C; transmission, etc. After 125,000 KM the car became a money pit (transmission, alternator, fuel pump, A/C).


Best Features

None.


Worst Features

Remove the inner gaskets from the doors,just trapped water and contributed to premature rusting of the door panels.
